Lieutenant resigns after FL firehouse sex video surfaces November 4, 2014

Lt. Stephen Coward’s 19 year run with the Clearwater Fire Department ended abruptly last month with his resignation after a graphic cell phone video and sex talk emails surfaced indicating he had been having intimate encounters with women other than his wife inside Clearwater Fire Station 51.

“We began an investigation immediately and tried to figure out what happened,” said City Spokesman Rob Shaw.

The video shows Coward engaged in intercourse with a woman inside the bathroom of his dormitory room at the firehouse. He’s smiling and holding up a cell phone that is recording that sex act in a mirror.

That video, along with 40 salacious emails involving Coward and another woman were on a flash drive sent to a Clearwater fire chief on August 6th.


“The fire department received a package and within that package contained a letter and also a disk that encouraged us to check out some activities alleged to have gone on at one of our fire stations,” Clearwater city spokesman Rob Shaw to ABC Action News.

Officials said Coward admitted to the inappropriate actions before resigning.

Coward also admitted to having sex with a woman inside a dive truck as well as in a weight room.

A second anonymous person came forward to officials saying Coward had sexual relations with as many as eight different women while on the job, a list that includes an elementary school teacher, a former girlfriend of a colleague and former girlfriends of Coward’s.

According to the internal investigation, Coward told city leaders that no one from the fire department knew of his transgressions.


Man called it “extreme shopping,” women called it ‘flashing’ October 21, 2014

Christopher Durrell Glaze told Sanford police he was “extreme shopping” after he flashed two women at the Seminole Towne Center mall last week, an arrest report states.

sfl-flduh-extreme-shopping-flashing-20141020-001Two women reported seeing Glaze, 27, exposing himself at the mall Wednesday afternoon.

The first described doing a “double take” after Glaze flashed her. As she went to report what had happened, he walked into a Victoria’s Secret store, where he encountered another woman, “pulled down the front of his pants and exposed himself completely to her,” according to the arrest report.

Police interviewed Glaze, who eventually confessed to flashing the two women, the report says.

Glaze initially told an officer he was shopping.

Asked what kind of shopping, he said “extreme shopping,” something he defined as “when you go shopping and you talk to girls and flirt,” the arrest report says

When police asked if Glaze had exposed himself, he initially said he had exposed his stomach, but later admitted that he had flashed his genitals, the report says.
He was arrested on two counts of indecent exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor.

Have you ever been locked outside while naked?

And naked.

Starling’s speech was slurred and she said she’d been drinking.

She said she locked herself out of her apartment, and police found “smashed pots where she had caused a disturbance.”

After finding that Starling’s apartment was locked, police took her to the St. Lucie County jail where she was locked up on a disorderly intoxication charge.

Woman accused of committing solo sex act on motorcycle in open garage September 9, 2014

A woman who Ormond Beach police say was committing a sex act atop a motorcycle with her garage door open was arrested after the activity was witnessed by a 13-year-old boy, the child’s mother and another neighbor, an arrest report shows.

sfl-flduh-sex-act-motorcycle-20140908-001Karen Marie Dilworth was charged with lewd/lascivious exhibition by a person over 18 on a person under 16, after the incident in front of her house on Pine Cone Trail in The Trails subdivision on Saturday night, a report shows.

The 50-year-old Dilworth, who denied she committed a sex act on a motorcycle, told Ormond Beach police that she was in her garage smoking and drinking beers, the report shows.

But at least two of her neighbors said otherwise, one of them calling 9-1-1 and yelling at Dilworth to shut her garage door.

The boy and his mother were arriving at their residence on Pine Cone Trail when they spotted Dilworth — the front of her half-nude body on the bike was facing the street — in her garage, the report shows. The shocked mother called out to her other neighbor and that neighbor in turn yelled out to Dilworth, the report shows.

Dilworth was taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail and was released after she posted $1,000 bail. When reached by phone Monday, Dilworth declined comment.


Bare-naked lady showed up in yard, refused to leave September 3, 2014

A woman accused of showing up “buck (buttocks)” naked in a back yard got arrested after a call to Fort Pierce police, according to recently released records.

sfl-naked-and-not-afraid-woman-20140902-001Arriving officers saw Joan Canally, 48, “totally naked walking towards us,” a report states.Police on Aug. 24 went to an address in the 700 block of Citrus Avenue for a possible sexual assault, which ultimately was determined to be something else.

Canally said she was sexually assaulted, but three witnesses said she “came over naked and would not leave and no one had sex with her.”

She later said she asked for sex, and then had sex with her boyfriend.

One witness said she came out of the house and spotted Canally naked in the backyard. The witness said Canally refused to say why she had no clothes on and also wouldn’t leave.

A second witness said Canally “came over to our yard ‘buck (buttocks)’ naked,” saying she’s not supposed to be there.

A third witness said he returned from the store and a naked lady was in the backyard.

Police reported Canally had trespass warnings issued to her in June and July.

“This is not the first time Canally has called 911 saying she was sexually assaulted,” a report states. “Past investigations reveal Canally admitting to walking to (an address in the 700 block of Citrus Avenue) asking the homeless men for sex, in exchange for beer.”

Canally, of the 700 block of Citrus Avenue in Fort Pierce, was jailed on trespass after warning and indecent exposure charges.
